Bright pink world

Bright eyes and a bushy tail in the bright pink cherry blossoms.

The bright spot of Ginger’s day yesterday was espying a squirrel in the blossoms.

Ginger likes to keep an eye on the little rascal in the tree.

It looked like it had snowed cherry blossoms…hard to believe there are any left in the tree.

Cherry Blossoms

One of the things I’ve had to learn as I explore photography is that there is a difference between being in focus and having a focus for the composition. Often it seems like for the composition to have a clear focus one does well to have part of the picture out of focus. I chose this pair for the Focus theme because they demonstrate the difference between being in focus and having a focus.
Both of these pictures have the same elements but the one that is the header, while it is pretty much in focus, doesn’t really have a focus. I took it to try and capture the overall effect, how much the blooming cherry tree looked like lace.

The second picture doesn’t have as much of the scene in focus, but it has a focus: the white blossoms.
